    I felt the need to make the declaration since it's the first "x-months to the date" moment, having just secured our exact date a few weeks ago :)

          sorry it took me a little longer, had a few test done yesterday at the hospital. (I have crohn's diease, and yesterday I found out it's in remission!!)
          so let me know what you guys think about the centerpiece now that I've made the changes. I also add the BM bouqout I made (not 100% done, still needs ribbon)

            Congratulations on your Crohns being remission - the company I used to work for made a medication for that so I know how debilitating it can be.

            The centerpiece looks great - using the clear stones makes the flowers stand out a lot more.

            Love the BM bouquets - what color ribbon will you be using?

              oh what a small world, do you know the med they make, maybe i take it.

              Thanks, I couldn't agree more about the clear stones, thanks so much for the great advice.

              For the ribbon, I was thinking white, what do you think?

                They made Remicade.

                I think white will look good, or the blue that the accent flower - or even a little of both. You could also do green ribbon to blend with the stems so the flowers stand out more.

                  both my grandma and my best friend/MOH have chron's so i know ALL about remicade!

                  tracy, the centerpieces look fantastic with the clear stones now!! and your BM bouquets are beautiful too... did i read that right, that you made them yourself? the thing i would caution about green ribbon is that if it's the same color as the stems, it can end up looking like a big stick in front of your dress. i went to a wedding where the bride's dress was white and her flowers were wrapped in green and it looked like a stick with a bunch of flowers attached on top!

                  i FINALLY uploaded some of my pictures... give me a minute and i'll post some...

                    here are the personalized towels and bags we got for all of our guests (one bag per couple). we used the stargazer image from our monogram and took out our wedding date so it would have a little more "mass appeal" for everyone.

                    here is the inside of the bags.. don't know if you can tell from the picture but there's a zipper on one side and a pocket on the other and it's a really nice, waterproof material that should wipe down easily if it's used as a beach bag...

                      jerseykitten,
                      I was on remicade for a year and half. It was amazing relieft for about half a year until it caused remicade induce lupus (I went crippled for 8 months)
                      Now on humira, would caused the remission.

                      I think I'll try white ribbon, I think ebredhawk has a good point with the same color ribbon as the stems. I'll try white and post a pic, see what you guys think

                      ebredhawk,
                      I love the towl and bag!!!! where did you get them? and did you do the Dominican republic by yourself? Iron on?

                      Ohh I'm so sorry to hear your MOH and grandmom deal with this horrible disease, I hope it's very controled for them. You have to be a real good friend to put with crohn's.

                      I made all centerpiece and bouquets myself (unbelieveable, never done DIY projects lol )

                      I agree white or blue ribbon for the stems or it'll look horrible like your friend the bride did with her flowers.

                      Again, love your towel and bag!!!
